This just in into the PIX 11 Newsroom: Not one person was murdered in New York City on Monday.
You would think a story like this wouldn’t really make headlines, but considering it hasn’t happened in a very, very long time, it truly needs to be noted.
NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne couldn’t even remember the last time a day went by where not one person wasn’t shot, stabbed or slashed.
The fact is: murder is down 23 percent, according to a report in New York Daily News, where it plummeted from 472 killings in 2011 to 366 for this year.
In the timeless words of Ice Cube, Monday “was a good day.”
And Tuesday: not so much. The no-murder streak ended just before noon when a 27-year-old man was shot in Brooklyn.
